Employees of the Hindustan Times were told on June 20 that because of the difficult period the company went through last year, and the continuing "challenge on revenues" there will be no salary increase this year.  A Variable Performance Bonus has been paid to "all eligible people," and  a special fixed monthly payment was announced  (for the period Apr’17-Mar’18) for those people whose relative salary is low. This will be done across HT Digital Streams, HT Media Ltd, and Hindustan Media Ventures Ltd.
